ABSTRACT:

This article is devoted to the spectral research of Ce(III) and Pr(III) ions in molten alkali fluorides. Using spectral data a coordination conditions of Ce(III) and Pr(III) ions were estimated. It is proved that f d transition split parameters of Ce(III) ions and hypersensitive 3H4 →3P2 transition band shift of Pr(III) ion depend on the second coordination sphere compound of (Ln = Ce, Pr) complex groups.
